REX Guiding Principles & Values
Thought leadership they say is based on youthful righteousness - the openness to risk group rejection, in the pursuit of a better way of doing things. At REX the idea should not be random for just giving a talk (i.e. it should not just be academic or dysfunctional) or just for monetizing but about how it can make a difference for the greater good of humanity, society, environment and the world we live in. At REX unlike other forums we encourage speakers to talk on socio-political and other issues without any censorship.
"Our ethos - Not Just Talks, Ideas for Action - b'coz REX is KINGSIZE THOUGHT LEADERSHIP for POSITIVE CHANGE where TRUE STORIES and REAL IDEAS are brought to LIFE and kept ALiVE through the year/s, collectively by all our moJOsh Inspirators". Every year at REX, we do not just present cool performers or speakers who do the razzmatazz with gimmicks and rehearsed speeches, but curate conscientious global citizens who TALK THE TALK, TALK THE WALK, WALK THE TALK and WALK THE WALK and simply come and share their TRUE STORIES AND INSPIRATIONAL IDEAS. These are people who believe in PLAINSPEAKING FROM THE HEART and leave you SPEECHLESS with their moJOsh. Given below are our Guiding Principles at REX.
Together as ONE we can RIGHT every WRONG
We encourage social justice by inspiring citizen action and the Joy of Giving
At REX we inspire people to act on their ideas and to make a difference in the society/ community/ world we live in.
Our dream is the creation of an egalitarian, just, humane and responsible society, nation and world.
At REX we dream to have 7 Billion Karmaveer Citizens across the globe who practice proactive citizenship, fulfil our fundamental duties to enjoy our rights and contribute with our simple, humble ideas for action towards achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals and Holistic Social Justice.
Our Inherent Foundational Beliefs
Individual Social Responsibility of citizens is prime, because in the history of India and the world it has always been the Few Concerned Citizens who have BEEN and LED THE CHANGE. These few Karmaveers led change by igniting ACTION AGAINST APATHY and mobilised other citizens to come together for reclaiming and preserving our democratic values, fundamental rights & duties as given to ourselves in our constitution and Republic (which means People Rule).
We believe in celebrating the POWER OF ONE, individually and collectively because "We the People are we the Power". We sincerely, humbly BELIEVE & KNOW that, we as an organization or the few people involved with the movement , cannot RIGHT every WRONG by ourselves. Thus we have created this movement to bring together, people from all over the globe and create collective energy for change. You and I alone may be unable to RIGHT every WRONG but "Together as ONE we can RIGHT every WRONG".
- It is not mindless, arrogant charity but humble involved social justice that is wanting in our world.
- We need to value learning, knowledge & traditional Eastern wisdom and best practices from western philosophy as our real wealth and award.
- Innovative Ideas for Action can lead the change in our society, nation and world by creating awareness about the need for everyone's integral involvement to make a real difference.
- REX KARMAVEER GLOBAL FELLOWSHIP and LEADERSHIP is a personal choice, built inside out on a foundation of character. We shall always do the RIGHT thing and stand up to speak out against wrongs.
- That alone we may be able to Right the Wrongs in our own space & time but TOGETHER as ONE we can RIGHT every WRONG.
- That the JOY OF GIVING is not just about giving some money to some cause but about being the change by getting involved integrally with a cause.
- Through WISDOM TRANSFER, KNOWLEDGE SHARING and CULTURETAINMENT we can create a positive , proactive culture in our world to INSPIRE SOLID CHARACTER and HUMANENESS through our REX KARMAVEER GLOBAL FELLOWSHIP where our CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE would influence POSITIVE CHANGE in their circles and society.
- Humility: We can treat well or reprimand a janitor and a minister with the same respect.
- Integrity: We shall relentlessly work towards the greater public good irrespective of all adverse situations we may face.
- Respect for a PERSON: We value each and every person we bond with and treat each fellow or other volunteer as true partners with mind, body, heart and soul.
- Courage of Conviction: We shall stand up and speak out against all wrongs irrespective of who or what we are speaking against.
- Honesty of Purpose: We follow the REX KARMAVEER FELLOWSHIPS code with all honesty.
- Seriousness of Intent: We seriously feel that if each human being has the right selfless intent then together we can create an egalitarian, just, humane and responsible society, nation and world.
- Accountability - We must have ownership and discipline to fulfil our Individual Social Responsibility.
Our core objectives:
- To Create Awareness about the need to practice human values and our fundamental duties as citizens.
- To provoke thought leadership and encourage "Citizen ACTION for PEOPLE POWER" (that is what DEMOCRACY means)" by disseminating the knowledge we churn in our forums through our network of ethically and socially likeminded citizens who we choose as our REX KARMAVEER GLOBAL FELLOWS.
- To build a large global on-ground and online media mission where we share "ideas for action".
- To create an egalitarian platform which has NO VIP culture, like we have done with KARMAVEER AWARDS where people from all walks of life participate and bond with each other without any discrimination.
- Create a melting pot where Thought Leaders, Noble Laureates, Champions of Change, Voices of Conscience, Missionary Entrepreneurs, Whistle Blowers, Bravehearts, Voices of Dissent, Social & Political Scientists, Activists, Eco Warriors, Students, Youth Leaders, Kidpower, Royalty, Armed Forces Soldiers , Captains of Industry, Economists, Architects, Doctors, Engineers, Lawyers, Chartered Accountants, Entrepreneurs, Global Celebrities, Movie Stars, Sports Stars, Musicians, Entertainers & Artistes, Stand Up Comics, Playwrights , Theatrewallahs, Alternative Healers , Statesmen & Political Leaders, Civil Servants & Bureaucrats , International Diplomats, Law Makers and Cops, Peacekeepers, UN Leaders, Civil Society Leaders, Development Workers, CXOs and Corporate Executives, NGO & CBO workers, Homemakers, Educators and Academia Leaders, Tribals, Dalits, Leadership and Life Coaches , Management Consultants, CSR & HR professionals, Panchayat Leaders, Authors, International Policy Makers, Beggars, Rural Workers, Farmers, Labourers, Bus, Cab and Auto Drivers, Spiritualists, Mystics, Personal Development Gurus, Sex Workers, Slum Dwellers, Government Officials, Advertising & Media , HIV Positive People, Disabled people, Professionals, Journalists & Editors, Slum Dwellers, Left Out Children, Filmmakers, Global Citizens, Volunteers , Reformers and many others from different sectors and spaces including People from Government, Educational & Bilateral / Multilateral Institutions, Industry Associations, UN, NGOs, CBOs, PE, Microfinance/ Insurance, Advertising and others come together to find ways to collaborate and make a difference in our world.

- To churn shared learning, knowledge and "thought leadership for positive change" towards enabling wisdom transfer so that anyone around the world can replicate the ideas for action.
- Raise funds ethically & efficiently from conscientious & principled institutions/organizations and institutions to build in sustainability, replicability and scalability for the REX mission and for programs led by REX KARMAVEER GOBAL FELLOWS.
